FA rejects Degen red card appeal

Liverpool defender Philipp Degen
Degen was making his first league start of the season for Liverpool

The Football Association has rejected Liverpool's appeal against defender Philipp Degen's red card in the 3-1 defeat against Fulham on Saturday.

The 26-year-old was shown a straight red for a late challenge on Clint Dempsey and the FA upheld the decision.

Degen, who has made four appearances for the Reds this season, will now begin a three-match domestic ban.

Meanwhile, Manchester United's Fabio da Silva has had a yellow card he picked up transferred to his brother Rafael.

Fabio was booked for a foul on Jamal Campbell-Ryce during the Carling Cup tie at Barnsley last week, but the FA agreed it was a case of mistaken identity.


Aston Villa's Stephen Warnock has also had a yellow card taken away after his booking at Everton on Saturday was transferred to team-mate Stiliyan Petrov.

Liverpool also appealed against Jamie Carragher's sending off at Fulham for a foul on Bobby Zamora and the FA is yet to make a decision.
